painted and signed

i finally had the chance to finish some of my old paintings over break.

i can honestly say i have never felt like i have ever really finished a picture. i am never 100% satisfied or content, but i know if i keep working i will most likely ruin it. . .

it is often said that the hardest part of the whole process is knowing when you’re done.

+ originally inspired by sargent, but then i went and did my own thing . . .

+ the third of my seasonal tree collection {it looks like a crazy lady in the 70s painted this one . . . i painted over this one maybe five times}

+  small painting inspired by one of the photos i took in this set.

+ an experiment with color

+ inspired by miro, but i went crazy with it . . .

+ study of automat, but changed to make it work better for me . . . i was about to give up on this one, but i set my mind to finish it over break and this is what happened. . .

there is still so much i want to learn and experiment with with paints. i’ve missed it more than i can say and i cannot wait for the day when i get to paint uninterrupted all day long.

also, special thanks abby for reading this to me while i worked. nothing is better than having someone you love read to you while you make things.


One thought on “painted and signed

  1. They look beautiful, muffin! I’m so impressed. The boys’ heads look totally normal/human now, too. Way to go. (Can I has??)
